The NY Times have conjured a fashion slide show out of last saturday's SPLAT 'graphic novel' symposium.


Most cultivated an aura of benign self-neglect. Overstuffed messenger bags, weathered cords, Converse sneakers and trilbys contributed to the effect. Tousled hair, windbreakers and spectacles, too, played a part in transforming these studiously nondescript characters into brashly confident avatars of cool.

Two great pictorial sites.
1. You're Doing it wrong! ("fine examples of idiots who can't drive cars, can't ride bikes, can't fly planes, and can't remember to take the hose out of the gas tank.")
A long slideshow of calamitous moments.

2. Photoshop Disasters ('Begun this clone tool has') (sic)
"Have you seen a truly awful piece of Photoshop work? Clumsy manipulation, senseless comping, lazy cloning and thoughtless retouching are our bread and butter. And yes, deep down, we love Photoshop. If it is commercial and awful then please let us know!"

Above is from their march 3rd post, 'Victoria's Secret: Classic severed hand.'

Quote for the day.
Tommy Dorsey, bandleader (mid 1940s): “There are three evil people in the world - Adolf Hitler, Buddy Rich and Alvin Stoller- and I’ve had two of them in my band”.

The model with the hand on her shoulder is Marissa Miller (née Bertetta). I went to junior high with her. She was very nice. Nobody said too much about her 3rd hand though she was sensitive about it -- mostly because it was so damn mannish. No matter how she dressed it up, it still looked like some guy's meat hook draped over her dainty shoulder. Recent pix of her showed the hand missing. I though she'd had it removed but apparently they've been Photoshopping it out the whole time. This shot just goes to show she's still the same girl she used to be.
